Just found an recent Wall Street Journal article reposted in Yahoo! Finance: “Why Your Home Is Not the Investment You Think It Is.” Basically, it’s discussing why you shouldn’t look at your personal home as a saving / investing strategy–all the other costs involved with personal home ownership chip away at the value saved in your home.
I’m just surprised that this article’s for free on Yahoo! Finance. I noticed the media partnership icon for the WSJ on the bottom.
In any case, check out the article.
